But when your body becomes insulin resistant, sugar starts to build up in the blood, causing damage to blood vessels and nerves.The closer your blood sugar readings are to 6.5, the more likely you will start to develop complications because of high blood sugar levels, says Melanie Davies, professor of diabetes medicine at Cardiff University.‘People of South Asian origin are up to six times more likely to develop pre- diabetes as a genetic susceptibility means they start to develop insulin resistance at a much lower BMI,’ says Mr O’Neill.Black and other ethnic minorities are also at increased risk.The approach has been met with excitement by other experts in the field.James Walker, consultant diabetologist at Livingston hospital, West Lothian, believes the research challenged conventional thinking.
Professor Taylor started investigating the diet after he became intrigued by the observation that type 2 diabetes is reversed almost overnight in obese patients following gastric bypass surgery for weight loss.‘I realised that this led to a sudden shift of fat away from the liver and pancreas.I felt tired in the evening, and then constipation set in.Perhaps it was because I was not drinking enough water.However, there are some unfortunate people like myself who seem to be disposed to accumulating fat in the liver and pancreas, despite being a healthy weight.After contacting Professor Taylor, and getting the nod from my GP, I decided to follow the diet (experts warn never to start such a drastic regimen without first checking with your doctor).
